Bolero (from A farewell to St Petersburg)

Mikhail Glinka (1804 - 1857)

Bolero (from A farewell to St. Petersburg)

Words by Nestor Vasil'yevich Kukol'nik (1809-1868)

Song text translation:

O wonderous maiden! In your love I am happy. Pressing your forehead to my breast, you melt in wordless ecstasy. Such flames in your eyes! Such sweet bliss on your lips! Your breast quivers, and you are all atremble... Without words you give me adjurations! The embrace continues... without an utterance. I drink the ecstasy of your love in imperturbable silence... But if you betray me, but if you betray me? O my wretched maiden! I shall be wild and gloomy, and I shall raise a storm of death against you and your lover! The blood is steaming, a cry rings out! I have pressed against your lips, I am tearing out the last sound of speech and the last glance of your eyes. The winged dreams of love, all hopes and happiness - say farewell to it all; I saw you in a devious dream... But no, you will not betray me, but no, you will not betray me!
